Beautiful Places in United Kingdom

Top Places To Visit

Buckingham Palace is the residence of the Queen of England. No matter what time of the day you show up at the palace gates, it will be packed. Although the iron gates always stay bolted shut, a glimpse at the Queen's residence is enough to have you gaping. Plus, the change of guard is something worth checking out, though I'm not too sure of the exact time of day it happens.

This charming riverside town is the capital of the Scottish Highlands. It’s a great base for a getaway to Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle and the gorgeous Isle of Skye.

This place is the heart of Central London. With all the street shows happening and people walking around and the souvenirs shops - every tourist in London must experience this place. Tip: best time to visit this place is post midnight because that's when this places is alive with the people partying and the pub crawls happening.

Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is one of the most popular and easily accessible travel destinations in Scotland. We pre-decided the driving route, crossed the English-Scottish borders in style; received a musical welcome from a Scottish piper as we officially entered Scotland but it was miles to go before we reached our destination.

For some breathing space head to the ever-so-chic Holland Park, which hold a Japanese garden, an opera house and even peacocks.

Primrose Hill is a very small park just adjacent to Regents Park on its north-east end. There is nothing too impressive about it except that in the middle of the park there is a hill where you can get a birds eye view of London. This place is again a favourite of mine, its great to sometimes just sit there and look at the city - very quiet, very relaxed and very calm!

By far my favorite part about the overall Hogmanay festival is the Torchlight. Led by Vikings with torches twice the size of what I carried and accompanied by bagpipes and other music through old Edinburgh, ending on the top of Calton Hill, it’s just unlike anything else I’ve ever done anywhere in the world. I laughingly joked my first time that I couldn’t believe they were letting me play with fire at all….let alone also letting thousands of other people do so at the same time! Grand grand fun and so many photo-worthy moments too.

It’s a good idea to drive to these nearby falls, nestled in the Welsh thickets. Combining this with your day trip to the Snowdonia national park would be a day well spent with nature.INSIDER TIPSRent cheap cars at http://www.rentalcars.com/ for below 15GBP, over 2 days.Mind you, the network coverage can be quite poor. So it is best you have the location tracked, beforehand.SCOTLANDItineraryEDINBURGH  GLENCOE  ISLES OF SKYEAfter spending a good two days exploring the best of scenic English landscape in Wales and driving all the way to Scotland, it would be a good idea to celebrate the slow pace of life in the historically rich old city of Edinburgh. It is good to keep changing the type of travel experience, in order to have a taste of everything.PLACES TO SEE IN EDINBURGH

Hampstead Health is again a huge park in the northern part of London. Surprisingly, all the parks have a different character to it. Hampstead is almost like a jungle - with hills and dense forests and so on. It has a couple of ponds which are quite popular for swimming in the summer.

It feels like I'm walking into the clouds. It was quite dangerous as I am not able to see what's ahead of me when nearing the top.

I love visiting these parks. Whenever the sun is out (and sometimes when it isn't!), its a pleasure to walk around the parks, taking in all the freshness! So I thought it would be a good idea to pen down my thoughts about the ones visited in recent years. When I am in a park, I don't take many photographs, as it seems so mundane. But now when writing the blog, I realied how few pics I have of them. Still found some pics of the ones close to my house which were visited more often ;-), so at least there is something to post!

Last week, Singapore Day 2014 was held at Victoria Park in London! It is basically a reunion for Singaporeans in Europe/UK! I was quite surprised that we all Singaporeans are indeed enthusiastic! There are close to 9,000 people attended. Some of them even flew all the way to London for this day! It was amazing, despite the long queues to get some local food that we all miss so much! The best part is, everything is FREE? Its a no brainer. Each of us received a picnic mat, a bottle of water, some heat pack ( if bad weather approaches) , wet tissues, and an umbrella! The overseas singaporean unit is really thoughtful!

The next destination to head to is the Windsor Racecourse for Monday races. It can qualify as one of the best evening watching the horse racing. The easiest and most fun way to get there is by boat. If you are lucky, you might just win enough to pay for an extended trip in the city.

Aros is a beautiful park near Tobermory. It offers many walking trails ranging from easy to moderate. When we parked our car at the Aros car park, it was a crisp winter day and the temperature hovered around Zero degree Celsius. It was indeed chilly but we deluded ourselves by looking at the Sun(which seemed only to be a source of light minus the heat) and started our 1.5 mile walk to the waterfall. It is a moderate walk, a little boggy at places and there's a view point at the end of the trail, with fantastic views of the waterfall.

Day three came soon; a little drippy and drowsy. The clouds populated the sky so intensely that we couldn’t muster up the courage to explore around the loch. It was best to bring out the board and card games while still stealing a glimpse of the Loch Lomond. After repeated failures to take a walk outside, we finally settled down with a cup of coffee on Uno. We enjoyed the drizzle from within the closed doors, without cold and without wet. Only the sound splattered on the wooden deck and the drops trickled down the glass windows. The old hills exhibited new colours; in some places new waterfalls sprung out and the clouds started to dissolve as it poured.

It is a strenuous hike of 14.2Kms and will check your ability at many points during the hike. But once you reach the summit, you will forget all about carrying those heavy backpacks, jumping from boulder to boulder, walk on the peat bogs, there will be just a rhythm playing in your ears, a rhythm that will appreciate the beautiful nature creation around you.

It is much more vast and more green, with the air more fresh and crisp than it looks. I love how the locals enjoy strolling by these parks and relishing their time, a delicacy lacking in Singapore.

We saw the Italian Gardens, a soothing water feature full of life and beauty. Supposedly it was created as a present from Prince Albert to his beloved Queen Victoria. Those two had one of the sweetest romances in the history of British royalty. We'll see Victoria's own tribute to her sweetheart in a minute.

This is a very small park, will be close to where I will stay. I look forward to exploring it further! P.S. (May 2016) Am still waiting for spring to fully arrive, but one of those rare sunny days I got out and explored the park a bit. Its quite picturesque, with fountains and landscaping.

Windermere is the largest natural lake in England and it has been one of the country's most popular places for holidays and summer homes since 1847. The climate was perfect for a good walk, we just ventured not knowing where we were supposed to reach. But, believe me it was one of the most amazing and romantic walk of our existence till date, through woods, through these huge farms with sheep's grazing, by the lake side with small waterfalls on either side, nothing less than like in HEAVEN. The long walk made us hungry and again we didn't want to settle for anything else but a good English pub, which we found in the main market. Again it was the similar ambience, set up and good food and beer pints like in all English pubs.After lunch we were back to walking around the city, the market, lake and places just outside the market which was full of summer homes and beautiful scenic views all around. Finally, at around 5 pm we were kind of done with exploring Windermere and decided to travel to Preston and explore another city close to Preston i.e. Lancaster, as we had a 11 pm train from Preston to Inverness (our next holiday destination). We hopped on into a train from Windermere station and reached Lancaster by 6 pm.It was getting dark and we could see the town during night. But it was worth walking the streets and exploring it during the night too. It was a beautiful cold evening; there were some beautiful castle structures in the city, pubs bustling with youngsters. After some shopping we were back to Lancaster station and reached Preston by 10pm. The train for Inverness was on time and we had already booked our seats, which had the comfort of a business class seat like in an airplane. The moment we entered the train and settled ourselves we were off to sleep.
